Booklist - 07/01/2020 Bea’s in a perilous position—dangling from a tree—when she meets Cad, an axolotl-like Galdurian, a race of beings long thought lost to history. When Bea’s forgetful grandfather, a bearded pig in a sweater, goes missing, she and Cad embark on a search, uncovering clues in the mystery of not only her grandfather’s disappearance but the strange lights that keep civilization safe from encroaching darkness. Impulsive, irrepressibly cheerful Cad is a lively foil for Bea, whose anxiety, rendered in a radiating swirl of black lines, sometimes swallows her right up. Probert’s cinematic, full-color artwork is packed with inventive creatures and vivid landscapes perfectly in keeping with the fantasy adventure atmosphere. Most intriguing, however, is the complex backstory behind the world that’s hinted at here—Where did the sun go? Who are the bird-like creatures in search of Bea’s magical lantern? And why won’t people leave the area illuminated by the golden light sphere built by Galdurians so long ago? While those questions go unanswered in this series starter, they’re sure to pique interest for forthcoming installments. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
